Involved in the maintenance of neuronal caliber, neurofilaments are the intermediate filament proteins found specifically in neurons, and are composed predominantly of three major proteins called NF-L, NF-M and NF-H. Like most other intermediate filament proteins (IFPs), the expression of the different neuronal IFPs is both tissue-specific and developmentally regulated. NF-L is the light or low molecular weight microfilament subunit and runs on SDS-PAGE gels at approximately 70 kDa. Neurofilament are the 10nm or intermediate filament proteins found specifically in neurons, and are composed predominantly of three major proteins called NF-L, NF-M and NF-H. NF-H is the heavy or high molecular weight microfilament subunit and runs on SDS-PAGE gels in the range 180-220 kDa, with some variation in different species.
